Human Rights Campaign presents sneak preview of new film, “‘Dirty Laundry’
Human Rights Campaign presents a sneak preview of “‘Dirty Laundry,’ the latest film from writer-director Maurice Jamal, on Aug. 26 at 7 p.m. at the Angelika Film Center and Caf?, 5321 E. Mockingbird Lane. Admission is free.
There will be an after-party at Cosmo Rouge, 407 N. Bishop St.
“Dirty Laundry” is described as a modern-day prodigal son story with a twist. It centers on New York magazine writer Patrick, played by Rockmond Dunbar, who returns to his family’s home in the South after 10 years to discover a big secret that could threaten his “perfect” life. The film also features Loretta Devine as the family matriarch, Evelyn, whose own story holds as much drama and secrecy as her son’s, and standout performances from Jenifer Lewis as Aunt Lettuce and Terri J. Vaughn as Jackie.
